XS Pro­duc­tions’ 17th An­nual Easter Kite-Fly­ing Fes­ti­val

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The XS Pro­duc­tions Team is set to host its 17th an­nual Kite-Fly­ing Fes­ti­val on Easter Mon­day, April 6, 2015 at Pi­geon Is­land (near San­dals Grande Re­sort). The event is called “Kites on Cloud 9” and is a fam­ily-ori­ented event started back in 1998 to en­cour­age the tra­di­tion of kite-fly­ing and kitemak­ing, which was in decline.

Reg­is­tra­tion will begin at 10:30 am on the day of the com­pe­ti­tion for four classes of com­peti­tors: Ju­niors, Adults, Groups, and The New Fly­ing Aces.

There are eight cat­e­gories to be judged this year: Big­gest Fly­ing Kite, High­est Fly­ing Kite, Long­est Fly­ing Kite, Small­est Fly­ing Kite, Most Colour­ful Kite, Most Pa­tri­otic Kite, Scari­est De­sign Kite, Most Cre­ative/ In­no­va­tive Kite.

Ready-made kites can be reg­is­tered for the com­pe­ti­tion but only in the High­est and Long­est Fly­ing cat­e­gories. Home­made kites will be judged for their fly­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, work­man­ship and colour.

The XS Pro­duc­tions An­nual Easter Kite-Fly­ing Fes­ti­val is the long­est run­ning fam­ily out­door event on the is­land and the XS Pro­duc­tion team en­cour­ages par­ents and chil­dren to get cre­ative with the kites and par­tic­i­pate in the fes­ti­val.

Spon­sors for the event are Aero­post, San­dals and RCI, in ad­di­tion to St. Lu­cia Dis­tillers, Dig­i­cel and 1st Na­tional Bank.
